June 28th: Proper Eight, the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

The falling monuments to white supremacy — whether cast in metal and bought from a catalogue or on state flags — make it clear that we’re at least as divided as we’ve ever been. This is what Jesus sends his disciples to. This is when Jesus promises a reward. This is when the church, Jesus’ body on earth here and now, is called to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.
